Amino Protein. It is a supplement composed of whey protein isolate of the highest quality (Isolate 90), with high biological value and bioavailability, free amino acids (arginine, ornithine, glutamine, taurine, citrulline and cystine), L-carnitine and vitamin B6. The formula contains the enzyme lactase which is able to hydrolyze traces of lactose present in milk proteins, making the product extremely innovative and ideal for people with lactose intolerance or poor digestibility.
Amino Protein is a complete protein supplement that perfectly integrates the quantity and quality of proteins needed in low-calorie, ketogenic or very low carbohydrate diets. It supplements the needs of essential and branched chain amino acids during intense muscle work in sports nutrition protocols.
The composition of Amino Protein has been optimized to promote and increase GH (growth hormone) synthesis, promote protein anabolism and fatty acid metabolism. GH is a metabolic hormone that induces lipolysis and protein anabolism and is involved in the expression of many other growth factors (primarily insulin-like growth factor or IGF-I).
Whey Protein Isolate 90. Whey protein with a high protein content (90%), high nutritional value, with a low fat and carbohydrate content, easily digestible and bioavailable for the maintenance and growth of muscle mass. Obtained by micro-ultrafiltration (CFM) from fresh whey using an innovative technology. The excellent dispersibility and great solubility make it a product easy to use to be dissolved in water or other drinks or dispersed in semi-solid foods (yogurt), ideal for the maintenance of muscle mass and for protein supplementation. Certified gluten free are ideal for people with lactose intolerance for the addition of lactase. They contain all essential amino acids including branched chain amino acids (BCAA) necessary for muscle growth, biological components of whey, including lactoferrin, beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactoalbumin, glycomacropeptide and immunoglobulins. Derived peptides have immunostimulant, antioxidant, antihypertensive, hypolipidemic, and antibacterial actions.
Amino Protein is soluble in a wide pH range and is perfect for protecting lean muscle mass during calorie reduction in clinical nutrition. Likewise, it should be considered a protein supplement for the athlete and an essential product in sports nutrition protocols1.
The intake of whey protein and particular amino acids such as arginine2, ornithine3, citrulline2 and taurine4 and vitamin B6 induce maximum GH secretion1. The increase of GH determines an inhibition of transcription by adipogenesis, stimulated by insulin and estrogen, with consequent mobilization of fat from the hormone-dependent areas. The presence of carnitine optimizes lipid metabolism and the catabolism of fatty acids at the mitochondrial level. The presence of arginine and citrulline induces the production of nitric oxide causing a vasodilatation that increases blood flow favoring the supply of nutrients to muscle cells, thus improving their trophism2. It is a nutritional protein support high in cystine, which stimulates the synthesis of glutathione, the most powerful natural antioxidant, appropriately supplementing the diet of immunocompromised and malnourished patients. Preserves the elasticity and hydration of collagen present in the subcutaneous connective tissue. Important biological functions of L-cystine in humans are described in the literature, whose applications are both in the pharmaceutical industry where it enters several formulations in drugs used to reduce acetaldehyde levels in the oral cavity5 and in the fields of clinical nutrition and aesthetics where it plays an important role in the preservation of skin annexes, hair and skin6,7.
